We’re excited to announce the launch of Heartwork 2013! We’re so thankful to all of the artists that donated their time and talents this year.
What is Heartwork?
Heartwork is a project designed to raise money for art supplies within the art room at Target House — this wonderful home-away-from-home for the families of children facing long-term treatment at St. Jude® Children’s Research Hospital.
The whole idea started simply enough. We, along with a few other creative individuals, were asked to work on various design projects for the St. Jude Target House. But, in the process, we were so deeply moved by the experience that we didn’t want it to end. We witnessed firsthand the special connection the kids had with the art room in particular. It was a place where we saw kids at all stages of health just being kids. So, we began to wonder, “What if we could create a ongoing way to support more and better art supplies for these children?” It was then that Heartwork was born.
Every year, a group of talented artists create a series of 11″ x 14″ giclee prints to raise money for the art room. Each of the prints feature an interpretation of the word “Hope” and each edition is limited to only 10 pieces and signed/numbered by the artist.
Archival giclee – printed with pigment inks on archival cotton rag paper
Size: 11 inches x 14 inches with a 1″ border for framing
Signed & numbered editions of 10

We’re honored to be part of the fantastic new book Kern and Burn: Conversations With Design Entrepreneurs curated by Tim Hoover and Jessica Karle Heltzel. Featuring Aaron Draplin, Heads Of State, Arman Vit and many others.
‘Kern and Burn: Conversations With Design Entrepreneurs’ is a beautiful two-color book that features candid conversations with 30 leading designers who have founded startups, channeled personal passions into self-made careers and taken risks to do what they love. In this book they share their failures, successes, and perspectives. Our hope is that you can learn from them — not to follow in their footsteps, but to chart your own course in parallel, one that allows you to thrive, add value to the world and love what you do.
The entire Kern and Burn project was brought to life by a successful Kickstarter campaign, but here’s where it all started. Tim and Jessica’s spirit and passion for this book is an inspiration, pick up a copy if you can!

Thanks to JB and the guys for their trust and letting us run crazy with it.

Last February, the kind folks at Austin City Limits Music Festival commissioned us to design key art and assets for their infamous 6-day event, which is happening October 4-6 and 11-13. We graciously accepted their request and the new look is now out in the wild. We had a blast compiling all that there is to love about the iconic festival, the city of Austin … and even a little of their historic bat and flag culture. Oh, and Depeche Mode is playing?!
